Most global companies have the element of being local in nature. A large corporation having different branches in China, Europe and the United States cannot run its operations based on a one-size-fits-all strategy. This is because talents of the employees, cultural nuance and government regulations affect the operations of a company. In the competitive food industry, consumer’s taste buds must also be put under considerations.
The President of OSI Group, David McDonald, contends that the company has a global network with plants and offices in different parts of the globe. To this end, the corporation has instituted local management teams that understand the local tastes and cultures. This strategy has enabled the company to satisfy the utility of its clients in different countries.

With over 50 facilities/plants in 17 nations, the company seeks to focus on local solutions and global-efficiency to expand its operations in China.
